TIPS FOR KEEPING KIDS SAFE
AS ACTIVITIES REOPEN
As we have entered into the summer months, and activities have begun to reopen, it is important to remind children and adolescents of the appropriate safety measures to follow while they are socializing with friends, and/or re-entering various activities. To remain healthy and safe, and prevent further spread of COVID-19, it's important to discuss the continued need to social distance, wear a mask, and frequently wash your hands, even though, it may seem the world is beginning to shift back to normal.
In addition, talk through missed milestones, such as graduations, proms, sporting events, etc., and missed activities, such as sleep away camp. It is important to provide reassurance and perspective, where needed, regarding these missed events.
